End of All Hope Lyrics

It is the end of all hope
To lose the child, the faith
To end all the innocence
To be someone like me
This is the birth of all hope
To have what I once had
This life unforgiven
It will end with a birth

No will to wake for this morn
To see...

    I recently had the following idea:
    The song is sung by Lucifer and shows his/her point of view.

    "It is the end of all hope
    To lose the child, the faith"
    -describing Lucifer's fall (lose the child,
    the faith) and the end of hope for Lucifer.

    "To end all the innocence
    To be someone like me"
    -Lucifer losing her innocence after
    the betrayal


    "This is the birth of all hope
    To have what I once had
    This life unforgiven
    It will end with a birth"
    -reference to the birth of the antichrist.
    Lucifer's human child and counterpart to
    Jesus. This birth would give new hope to
    Lucifer's rebellion and will end the
    unforgivable life of Lucifer and start a
    new.


    "Angels, they fell first but I'm still here
    Alone as they are drawing near
    In heaven my masterpiece will finally be sung"
    -Lucifer's rebellion against god. The
    angels were to first to rebel and of
    those traitors Lucifer alone still
    stands.
    Lucifer keeps resisting god and looks
    forward to the day when she will finally
    succeed in gaining control over earth and
    then heaven.

    "Wounded is the deer that leaps highest
    And my wound it cuts so deep"
    -Lucifer's loss (the fall from grace) is
    the wound.

    "Mandylion without a face"
    -The picture of Jesus but with his face
    erased. Again a reference to the birth of
    the antichrist.

    "Deathwish without a prayer"
    End of hope
    End of love
    End of time
    The rest is silence"
    - The apocalypse.

    I have a feeling this is about a terminally ill person, "turn out the light and let me pull the plug" or about a death wish in general. I wonder if it was written for Tarja's mother, who was dealing with cancer when this song was released, and who sadly died a year or so later. It's a good song, but a sad song.
